What Does Ankle Liposuction Cost?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in ankle liposuction. I am in good shape but have my mothers lower legs:(. No definition between thick ankles and calves) I live in another state so driving in for a consult won’t be possible with 3 small kids.  I liked the pics on your site, your work looks great!  Just want a ballpark figure so I can see if its in our budget for after the holidays.  I can send pictures of my legs, but they are typical cankles.  Not large, just not shapely.  I run 1/2 marathons and compete in triathlons… Nothing helps give me a calve or smaller ankle.  Thanks so much!!!

A: You undoubtably are referring to what is historically known as ‘cankle’ liposuction also known as ankle liposuction or ankle liposculpture. There would not a reason to come in for a consult. Pictures can tell me exactly all I need to know. Creating some definition between the calfs and the ankles is a minor liposuction procedure that narrows the inner and outer ankle widths. The procedure is fairly simple to perform and would cost in the ballpark number of around $4,000. The biggest issue with ankle liposuctiopn is that swelling will persist in the ankle area for awhile and the final result may take as long as three months to see.
